What is Toyota Rent a Car?

Whether you need a service rental, an insurance replacement vehicle, leisure rental, or travel for business. Toyota has you covered.

With the exception of customers that are flying out of the Bozeman International Airport, all vehicles must be returned to our rental office.
What types of vehicles can I rent?

Do you only offer Toyota Rental Vehicles?Because Ressler Motors is a Chevrolet and Cadillac dealer in addition to Toyota we offer a selection of GM vehicles in order to better meet the unique needs of our customers. While we primarily rent Toyota products, we may have a similar GM vehicle to meet your reservation when you pick up your rental. All rentals are late model vehicles, and are well maintained.
Can I smoke in the rental vehicle?
No, our rental fleet is 100% non-smoking. Customers that choose to smoke in the vehicle will be charged a $250 detail fee.
Can I buy the vehicle I am renting?
Absolutely. Most Toyota Rent a Car vehicles are available to purchase after a short in-service period. Please check with our rental department for more details.
Can I take the vehicle I rented into Mexico or Canada?
Toyota Rent a Car vehicles are allowed in the continental United States, Alaska and Canada. Toyota Rent a Car vehicles are not permitted in Mexico. Please contact us at 406-585-2010 for details on mileage restrictions.
Are there age restrictions on the person renting the Toyota?
Yes. You must be at least 21 years of age to rent a vehicle.
Who is permitted to drive the vehicle?
All drivers must be included on the rental agreement with the exception of the renter’s spouse. Additional drivers can be added to the rental agreement assuming they meet all the same qualifications as the renter. Any additional driver must be present at our office in order to be added to the contract. We cannot add an additional driver with a copy of a drivers license, fax, or email.
Are there any other restrictions?
You need a valid driver’s license, credit or debit card in your own name, and full coverage insurance with comprehensive and collision coverage in order to rent a vehicle.
Can I use a pre-paid card, check or cash?
At the time of rental all estimated charges will be authorized on a major credit card or charged on a debit card. The card used must be in the name of the person renting and signing for the rental car. We are unable to use a pre-paid debit card, gift card, cash or check when your rent the vehicle. You may however use a pre-paid card, or cash as final payment when you return the vehicle.
Do you offer Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)?
At this time we do not offer any Collision Damage Waiver or supplemental insurance. We require that you provide your own full coverage insurance including liability, comprehensive, and collision coverage that transfers to a rental vehicle. Rental coverage on a credit card or travel insurance is not a sufficient coverage to rent a car with us, but may be a great supplement beyond what is required when renting.
Can you pick me up from the airport?
Absolutely! We can pick you up from the airport Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm, and Saturday from 9:00am to 2:00pm. Please be aware that the airport does charge an extra 10% fee to your rental anytime we go onto their property. Most of the time this will be cheaper than taking a taxi as a $40 fare is not uncommon for a taxi in Bozeman. Incoming flight information is required for all airport pickups.
Do you have special rates for businesses?
Yes! We have a special rental program designed for business that rent frequently. Please contact us for detail on this program.
